Healthy Homemade Sushi

I love sushi.

There are several great Japanese restaurants in our neighborhood, but we usually opt to make sushi at home. Believe me, it can still make for a steller date night.

We made sushi all the time growing up – it was sorta our “go to” meal. My parents often substituted in healthy options like brown rice and salmon. We would all help to chop the ingredients, and then put everything out in bowls and platters on the counter. And then, everyone served themselves and chowed down.It may not be fancy, but it’s a quick, easy, and healthy meal idea that we all loved. And, clearly still love.

My favorite part? The seasoned Korean-style nori (seaweed) sheets. Once you load them with all the fixin’s, there is no room for rolling. You’ve got to eat these puppies like tacos. 

Ooh, and if you’re looking to go more date night and less kid-friendly, pair this recipe with some chilled Sparkling Sake from Trader Joes.
